Working undercover, Kovacs falls into the clutches of a woman with two personalities, perhaps three. Together they search for an old weapons system, while fighting off the younger version of Kovacs sent to obliterate him from the universe. Special effects include digitized voices and extended use of echo chambers to suggest memory. The book opens with such a long echo segment that the listener is tempted to give up in the first hour. The effect simply doesn't work. While William Dufris's characterizations offer clear differentiation and personality, his over-the-top performance suits the over-the-top writing in a manner that will draw dedicated listeners but may repel the casual sci-fi observer.
